Alfredo Bryce Echenique, 2012 Guadalajara International Book Fair Award
Alfredo Bryce Echenique (Lima, February 19, 1939) is one of my favourite Peruvian novelists and he just won the 2012 Guadalajara International Book Fair. This is the most important book fair in the Spanish language. His books published between the seventies and eighties are some sort of link between the Latin-American boom and the post-boom, influenced by the Noth American “dirty realism.”
